factoids
Middle High German (abbreviated MHG, , abbr. ) is the term for the form of German spoken in the High Middle Ages. It is conventionally dated between 1050 and 1350, developing from Old High German and into Early New High German. High German is defined as those varieties of German which were affected by the Second Sound Shift; the Middle Low German and Middle Dutch languages spoken to the North and North West, which did not participate in this sound change, are not part of MHG. While there is no standard MHG, the prestige of the Hohenstaufen court gave rise in the late 12th century to a supra-regional literary language () based on Swabian, an Alemannic dialect. This historical interpretation is complicated by the tendency of modern editions of MHG texts to use normalised spellings based on this variety (usually called "Classical MHG"), which make the written language appear more consistent than is actually the case in the manuscripts. Scholars are uncertain as to whether the literary language reflected a supra-regional spoken language of the courts.An important development in this period was the , the eastward expansion of German settlement beyond the line which marked the limit of Old High German. This process started in the 11th century, and all the East Central German dialects are a result of this expansion."Judeo-German", the precursor of the Yiddish language, sees attestation in the 12th–13th centuries, as a variety of Middle High German written in Hebrew characters.

  • the weakening of unstressed vowels to {{angle bracket|e}}: OHG ', MHG ' ("days"){{sfn|Waterman|1976|p=85}}
  • the full development of Umlaut and its use to mark a number of morphological categories{{sfn|Waterman|1976|p=85}}
  • the devoicing of final stops: OHG ' > MHG ' ("day"){{sfn|Keller|1978|p=276}}{{sfn|Brockhaus|1995|p=6}}
Culturally, the two periods are distinguished by the transition from a predominantly clerical written culture, in which the dominant language was Latin, to one centred on the courts of the great nobles, with German gradually expanding its range of use.{{sfn|Lindgren|1980|p=580}}{{sfn|Waterman|1976|pp=87f.}} The rise of the Hohenstaufen dynasty in Swabia makes the South West the dominant region in both political and cultural terms.{{sfn|Keller|1979|p=337}}Demographically, the MHG period is characterised by a massive rise in population,{{sfn|Keller|1979|pp=237|ps=: "the population appears to have increased about fivefold."}} terminated by the demographic catastrophe of the Black Death (1348).{{sfn|Keller|1979|pp=336}} Along with the rise in population comes a territorial expansion eastwards (), which saw German-speaking settlers colonise land previously under Slavic control.{{sfn|Keller|1979|pp=238-239}}{{sfn|Rautenberg|1985|p=1121}} Linguistically, the transition to Early New High German is marked by four vowel changes which together produce the phonemic system of modern German, though not all dialects participated equally in these changes:{{sfn|Waterman|1976|103}}
  • Diphthongisation of the long high vowels {{IPA|/iː yː uː/}} > {{IPA|/aɪ̯ ɔʏ̯ aʊ̯/}}: MHG ' > NHG ' ("skin")
  • Monophthongisation of the high centering diphthongs {{IPA|/iÉ™ yÉ™ uÉ™/}} > {{IPA|/iː yː uː/}}: MHG ' > NHG ' ("hat")
  • lengthening of stressed short vowels in open syllables: MHG ' {{IPA|/zaÉ¡É™n/}} > NHG ' {{IPA|/zaːɡən/}} ("say")
  • The loss of unstressed vowels in many circumstances: MHG ' > NHG ' ("lady")
The centres of culture in the ENHG period are no longer the courts but the towns.{{sfn|Eggers1985|p=1300|ps=: ""}}

Dialects

(File:Middle High German dialects.jpg|thumb|250px|Middle High German dialect boundaries)The dialect map of Germany by the end of the Middle High German period was much the same as that at the start of the 20th century, though the boundary with Low German was further south than it now is:{{sfn|Schmidt|2013|p=278}}{{sfn|Keller|1978|p=257}}Central German (Mitteldeutsch){{sfn|Paul|2007|pp=8–9}} Upper German (Oberdeutsch){{sfn|Paul|2007|pp=6–7}} With the exception of Thuringian, the East Central German dialects are new dialects resulting from the and arise towards the end of the period.{{sfn|Schmidt|2013|p=278}}{{sfn|Paul|2007|p=9}}

Writing system

Middle High German texts are written in the Latin alphabet. There was no standardised spelling, but modern editions generally standardise according to a set of conventions established by Karl Lachmann in the 19th century.{{sfn|Paul|2007|pp=23ff}} There are several important features in this standardised orthography which are not characteristics of the original manuscripts:
  • the marking of vowel length is almost entirely absent from MHG manuscripts.{{sfn|Paul|2007|p=27}}
  • the marking of umlauted vowels is often absent or inconsistent in the manuscripts.{{sfn|Paul|2007|p=72–73}}
  • a curly-tailed z ({{angle bracket|È¥}} or {{angle bracket|Ê’}}) is used in modern handbooks and grammars to indicate the {{IPA|/s/}} or {{IPA|/s/}}-like sound which arose from Germanic {{IPA|/t/}} in the High German consonant shift. This character has no counterpart in the original manuscripts, which typically use {{angle bracket|s}} or {{angle bracket|z}} to indicate this sound.{{sfn|Paul|2007|p=28}}
  • the original texts often use {{angle bracket|i}} and {{angle bracket|uu}} for the semi-vowels {{IPA|/j/}} and {{IPA|/w/}}.{{sfn|Paul|2007|p=142–144}}
A particular problem is that many manuscripts are of much later date than the works they contain; as a result, they bear the signs of later scribes having modified the spellings, with greater or lesser consistency, in accord with conventions of their time.{{sfn|Paul|2007|p=25}} In addition, there is considerable regional variation in the spellings that appear in the original texts, which modern editions largely conceal.{{sfn|Paul|2007|p=17}}

Vowels

The standardised orthography of MHG editions uses the following vowel spellings:{{sfn|Paul|2007|p=27}}
  • Short vowels: {{angle bracket|a e i o u}} and the umlauted vowels {{angle bracket|ä ö ü}}
  • Long vowels: {{angle bracket|â ê î ô û}} and the umlauted vowels {{angle bracket|æ Å“ iu}}
  • Diphthongs: {{angle bracket|ei ou ie uo}}; and the umlauted diphthongs {{angle bracket|öu eu oi üe}}
Grammars (as opposed to textual editions) often distinguish between {{angle bracket|ë}} and {{angle bracket|e}}, the former indicating the mid-open {{IPA|/ɛ/}} which derived from Germanic {{IPA|/e/}}, the latter (often with a dot beneath it) indicating the mid-close {{IPA|/e/}} which results from primary umlaut of short {{IPA|/a/}}. No such orthographic distinction is made in MHG manuscripts.{{sfn|Paul|2007|p=27}}

Consonants

The standardised orthography of MHG editions uses the following consonant spellings:{{sfn|Paul|2007|p=28}}

Phonology

The charts show the vowel and consonant systems of classical MHG. The spellings indicated are the standard spellings used in modern editions – there is much more variation in the manuscripts.

  1. Not all dialects distinguish the three unrounded mid front vowels.
  2. It is probable that the short high and mid vowels are lower than their long equivalents, as in Modern German, but this is impossible to establish from the written sources.
  3. The {{angle bracket|e}} found in unstressed syllables may indicate {{IPA|[É›]}} or schwa {{IPA|[É™]}}.

Diphthongs

MHG diphthongs are indicated by the spellings: {{angle bracket|ei}}, {{angle bracket|ie}}, {{angle bracket|ou}}, {{angle bracket|öu}} and {{angle bracket|eu}}, {{angle bracket|üe}}, {{angle bracket|uo}}, having the approximate values of {{IPA|/ei/}}, {{IPA|/iə/}}, {{IPA|/ou/}}, {{IPA|/øy/}}, {{IPA|/eu/}}, {{IPA|/yə/}}, and {{IPA|/uə/}}, respectively.

  1. Precise information about the articulation of consonants is impossible to establish, and will have varied between dialects.
  2. In the plosive and fricative series, where there are two consonants in a cell, the first is fortis the second lenis. The voicing of lenis consonants varied between dialects.
  3. MHG has long consonants, and the following double consonant spellings indicate not vowel length as in Modern German orthography, but rather genuine double consonants: pp, bb, tt, dd, ck (for {{IPA|/kk/}}), gg, ff, ss, zz, mm, nn, ll, rr.
  4. It is reasonable to assume that {{IPA|/x/}} had an allophone {{IPA|[χ]}} after back vowels, as in Modern German.

Grammar

Pronouns

Middle High German pronouns of the first person refer to the speaker; those of the second person refer to an addressed person; and those of the third person refer to person or thing of which one speaks.The pronouns of the third person may be used to replace nominal phrases. These have the same gender, number and case as the original nominal phrase.

Personal pronouns {| class"wikitable"|+ Personal Pronouns

Possessive pronouns

The possessive pronouns are used like adjectives and hence take on adjective endings following the normal rules.

Articles

The inflected forms of the article depend on the number, the case and the gender of the corresponding noun. The definite article has the same plural forms for all three genders.Definite article (strong){| class="wikitable"! Case! Masculine! Neuter! Feminine! Plural! Nominative' / '! Accusative' / '! Dative ! Genitive ! Instrumental|||The instrumental case, only existing in the neuter singular, is used only with prepositions: ', ', etc. In all the other genders and in the plural it is substituted with the dative: ', ', .

Nouns

Middle High German nouns were declined according to four cases (nominative, genitive, dative, accusative), two numbers (singular and plural) and three genders (masculine, feminine and neuter), much like Modern High German, though there are several important differences.

Strong nouns

Verbs

Verbs were conjugated according to three moods (indicative, subjunctive (conjunctive) and imperative), three persons, two numbers (singular and plural) and two tenses (present tense and preterite) There was a present participle, a past participle and a verbal noun that somewhat resembles the Latin gerund, but that only existed in the genitive and dative cases.An important distinction is made between strong verbs (that exhibited ablaut) and weak verbs (that didn't).Furthermore, there were also some irregular verbs.

Strong verbs

The present tense conjugation went as follows:{| class="wikitable"! rowspan="2" |! colspan="2" | to take! Indicative! Subjunctive! 1. sg.' >'! 2. sg.' >'! 3. sg.' >'! 1. pl.' >'! 2. pl.' >'! 3. pl.' >'
  • Imperative: 2.sg.: ', 2.pl.: '
  • Present participle:
  • Infinitive:
  • Verbal noun: genitive: ', dative: '
The bold vowels demonstrate umlaut; the vowels in brackets were dropped in rapid speech.The preterite conjugation went as follows:{| class="wikitable"! rowspan="2" |! colspan="2" | to have taken! Indicative! Subjunctive! 1. sg.' >'! 2. sg.' >'! 3. sg.' >'! 1. pl.' >'! 2. pl.' >'! 3. pl.' >'
  • Past participle:

Most Middle High German words survive into modern German in some form or other: this passage contains only one word (' 'say' 14) which has since disappeared from the language. But many words have changed their meaning substantially. ' (6) means 'state of mind', where modern German ' means courage. ' (3) can be translated with 'honour', but is quite a different concept of honour from modern German ; the medieval term focusses on reputation and the respect accorded to status in society.{{sfn|Lexer|1999}}

Words which have changed in meaning include ', which means "strife" or "hardship" in MHG, but now means "work", and ' ("festivity") which now, as , has the narrower meaning of "wedding".{{sfn|Lexer|1999}}

Erec

The text is from the opening of Hartmann von Aue's Erec ({{circa|1180–1190}}).
